"Cupcakes and Cattle Breeding" - a real headline

It's from The Wall Street Journal, even, about teens and summer jobs:

Jessica Cervantes, a Miami 18-year-old who loves to bake, grew tired of cleaning up cupcake messes and smeary frosting spots after birthday parties for her young cousins. So she cooked up a fancy cupcake on an edible cookie stick and is now selling "Popsy Cakes" for $30 a dozen. Although it's tough cramming in baking and delivering orders with her homework, she made $6,000 last year for her college fund.

And from a Florida Trend article:

Jessica Cervantes, 18, grew up hearing family members dream about having their own businesses. She dreamed too, but she was leaning toward becoming a doctor until she signed up for an entrepreneurship program at Ferguson High in Miami. For her program project, she invented, after many hours of experimentation, “Popsy Cakes,” cupcakes stuck on an edible cookie stick, a less messy alternative to the regular frosting-covered cupcakes.
